Default Potluck Advice?

I have a very small potluck supper meeting to attend tomorrow. I would like to take something yummy, but Core. Any suggestions for me?

Are you taking a appetizer, main course or dessert?

I am taking a main course. Maybe a dessert too, if anyone has some good suggestions! But I mostly want to make sure I take a Core main course so there is definitely something I can eat- I am out of flex points! Also, my first WI since starting Core is on Tuesday, so I don't want to risk anything!

Thanks, Kelly! I think I will try the slow cooker recipe. It sounds like something my DH would really enjoy too! Thats something else I like about Core, it is easier to please everyone.
Thanks again!

On Core or not-I am known for always bringing a pretty tray of fresh cut up fruit to gatherings-the basics like grapes, cantalaupe, strawberries...but also fruits a little more exotic that a lot of people don't eat as often-like sliced kiwi, peeled and sectioned clementines (fresh mandarin oranges), and pieces of mango. If you have a nice serving tray it is actually a very pretty thing to bring with all of the colors and textures together.
